Rendezvous at the Light - Thank you for coming!

We had a sold-out affair this past Saturday with almost 600 people in attendance by the waterfront. We were thrilled with the event and will be posting photos here soon. A HUGE thank you goes out to the participating restaurants and businesses that participated. Stay tuned for the great photos. Our next event is SIP & SHOP on Wednesday December 6 where we will stay open, offer small bites and wine and you can come and do all of your holiday shopping from our amazing gift shop. We’ll be posting more information soon.

Hurricane Irma Update

We are fully open for regular admission & tours.

After inspecting the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, including by professional drone, we can thankfully report only minor damage from Hurricane Irma. The new roof performed perfectly, but the wind found a few new places to push some water into the tower. These will need further investigation and repair. Astragal frames that hold the triangular weather glass will also need repairing and repainting. Once again the hurricane collected beach sand and literally “sandblasted” a few areas of paint on the bricks and mortar – those painted both black and red. This will require a hanging swing stage to access the areas under the gallery deck. We are grateful that the Razorback LLC team will be back to assess, repair and repaint all damage caused by Irma along with our maintenance chief.

Other hurricane damage at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum included shingle damage to the museum roof and one of the site houses, and substantial landscaping damage. All artifacts were packed up and put in safe storage prior to the storm and over 600 hurricane shutters were installed to protect our historic buildings.

Hurricane Irma Lighthouse fund – we need YOUR help today! Thanks to our amazing team, all artifacts, exhibits and historic structures remained safe during Hurricane Irma, but we did receive some damage to the Lighthouse & grounds and sustained a crucial loss in our non-profit funding. Your donations towards Lighthouse repairs can be made online here. We thank you for your support of our historic Light and grounds.
